at what's best for this country and getting our deficit under control. so, we'll set those common principals and move forward. >> that translate into real action and in the nation's interest. i thought the president the other day made a splendid speech after his victory over the republicans on the shutdown and the debt ceiling deal, i thought he said all of the right things, but i have heard him say the right things before and republicans say the right things. what do you think the odds are of this committee, supercommittee or the budget conference committee that results from a deal, what are the odds that you can get something done that will profoundly, significantly, meaningfully, stop government spending levels at this height and actually curtail deficits and subsequently debt. >> lou, i'm always an optimist on moving forward. the one thing that encourages me we have been able to work together on the weighs and means, with both of our counterparts in the house, the democrats, and our counterparts in the senate. we have been working together on taking a road show around the coun
in the country, that's not true. he said it would not add a dime to the deficit. instead, sure it does, it borrows half a trillion dollars from the medicare which is going broke and is running out of money and has no money to lend and uses that to fund this thing. he said he would never raise taxes on anybody who made less than $250,000 a year. yet, the bill is funded by half a trillion dollars in taxes on medical device companies, drug companies, hospitals, healthcare providers and insurance policies all of those costs will be passed on to people who make less than $250,000 a year and more than $250,000 a year and happen to be sick. a lot of sick people, people who need a medical device or drug, a lot of those people make less than $250,000 a year. >> well, what's so disheartening to he me, karl, is you i really want the american people who are sick to get access to medical care. i really do. and to put a bum program up, all it does is sets us back so much further. we really did need to do something about our healthcare system. people are hurting in this country and we needed to fix i
of the aspects of the law because, in part, it added hundreds of billions to the deficit and was president paid for unlike the affordable care act, which will actually help lower the deficit. [cheers and applause] >> but you know what? once it was the law everybody pitched in to try to make it work. democrats weren't about to punish millions of seniors to make a point or settle a score. democrats worked with republicans to make it work. and i'm proud of democrats having done that. it was the right thing to do. , about 90% of seniors like what they have. they've gotten a better deal. both parties working together to get the job done. that's what we need in washington right now. that's what we need in washington right now. [cheers and applause] >> you know, republicans in congress were as eager to help americans get covered, some republican governors have shown themselves to be, -- i'm not asking them to agree on everything, but if they worked with us like mitt romney did working with democrats in massachusetts or like ted kennedy often did with republicans did in congress including on the prescr
deficit remains and that deficit is likely to have consequences, including on a major trade agreement the two sides are discussing right now. kate and chris, you have a german delegation visiting the white house. the issue that seems to spark the most anger for the european side is not just that spying take place but it went right up to the leaders such as angela merkel. that's the issue that sparks the most anger. >> all right, jim, thank you so much. interesting, though. mike rogers always says, that's why the president has to have an encrypted blackberry and cell phone. everyone is trying to spy on president obama as well. >> we don't know how much the politics is masking the practicalities these days. >> good one. >>> another storm, not of the political nature, a real one is brewing and could cause problems across the midwest and impact your halloween. let's bring in indra petersons who's tracking the storm for us. what do we know? have you stopped the storm. >> it almost looks like a big bullseye on the weather map. it tracks its way across. it's going to impact a huge chunk of t
we would explode the deficit and all the reputable organizations like the congressional budget office told us that it's going to save us $100 billion over ten years. >> now we have the committee and you are being asked later about the website. let me pursue this question about individuals who have gotten notices that they will have their individual insurance policiless canceled. they will be able to get another plan, won't they? >> it's the law that they must. continuous coverage is part of the law. that wasn't the case in the past. >> the affordable care act. we will end the worst abuse of companies and create consumer protections in the market place that they will be able to buy a policy even if they have been sick in the past and women won't be charged more than men. they won't be denied coverage because of preexisting conditions and put lifetime caps and will be an essential benefit package. you are not buying some things and having other things, but the minimum that everybody should have. prescription drugs and mental health coverage and doctors and hospitals. are these important
office is that would have increased the deficit by about $110 billion in the first decade and close to a trillion dollars in the second decade. we know that we have 42 or 43 million americans without health insurance at all, some of them medicaid eligible and some over the medicaid eligibility. 30 governors so far, republicans and democrats, have declared their support for moving ahead with medicaid expansion, but absent that, the affordable care act, those folks would be without any kind of health security. and in the private market, what we know is it takes a real toll. but i'd say the biggest issue is not just the financial toll, not the community toll, not the country toll, which is significant. i have a good friend who runs the cancer center at the university of kansas. i was with him and cancer researchers recent low, and he said that if you get a cancer diagnosis, you are 60% more likely to live five years and beyond if you have insurance than if you don't. i think that's a pretty powerful statement for why we need affordable health care for all of our citizens. >> well, than
